US 95 Corridor Widening and Reconstruction

Overview

The Arizona Department of Transportation, the Federal Highway Administration, and the U.S. Department of Defense are working to improve safety and traffic flow on US 95 between Rifle Range Road (milepost 35) and the Wellton-Mohawk Canal bridge (milepost 39). Crews will reconstruct and widen the existing two-lane roadway  into a five-lane roadway, while also replacing the bridge over the Wellton-Mohawk Canal. Additional work includes roadway excavation, drainage improvements, removing and replacing the pavement and applying new pavement markings.

Project Area

The project is located on US 95 within Yuma County.

What to expect:

To minimize impacts on traffic during the winter agricultural season and surrounding urban and military areas, ADOT has scheduled work to occur in two phases. 

Phase 1 was completed in fall 2022. Crews reconstructed and widened 3.6 miles of roadway between Avenue 9E and Fortuna Wash. 

Phase 2 includes:

  • Widening of 2.96 miles of road between Rifle Range Road (milepost 35) and the Wellton-Mohawk Canal Bridge (milepost 39). 
  • Delays and lane restrictions on US 95. Work is scheduled to occur between 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays.

Construction is expected to begin early spring 2023 with completion expected in summer 2024.
